 I am starting to hate these people

Well I am done. Reptile UV has been suggested to me lots of time. So I have been using them. I have 2 Uromastyx so I order 2 bulbs. The one I used has been absolutely fantastic. Matter of fact it just burnt out after a year. But one I got from them burnt out after a week. So I called them. I sent mine back and payed shipping to do it and they sent me one and it burnt after 2 days. Well here we are a year later and after a year of emailing and phone calling and no reply what so ever I am done. This company stinks. I hate them. They have a great product but when it fails they won’t back it up. And there customer service has been horrible.

Now I need alternatives. What brands should I use for uvb? Is there anything similar. I already have a cage built around it the bulb. With how tall it is. What do I use?

Currently I would not recommend ReptileUV. Until they can prove they once again have a quality product on their hands I see no reason to invest in any of their bulbs. That said, I believe the next best thing is ZooMed’s PowerSun MVBs. From my relatively limited experience (using three 160 watt bulbs for a few months now) they have performed quite well (no flickering, no burnouts) and since they are made in Japan I’d assume they have good QC, at least in comparison to, for example, China or Taiwan. I’ve been tossing around the idea of picking up a UV Meter but have yet to pull the trigger, so I can’t comment on actual output. This is an area where I’d have to trust the manufacturer’s numbers, at least until I can measure the UV output myself.

Hopefully others will chime in with their own experiences.

Can you get any of these locally? Such as from PETCO?

they are about 1/2 price online compared to Petco or PetSmart unless you get them on sale.
check Amazon or PetMountain.com or ReptileSupply.com
